Party at Broad Branch
Broad Branch Market has been in and out of business for a long, long time. It once was a DGS (District Grocery Store) which used to be all over this area. Now I can't find a thing about them, but the ones I remember were sometimes in houses, sometimes not, but all were much smaller versions of the mega food stores that we have now. The old Broad Branch Market went under a few years ago, but the new market is a blend of old and new. You can still get household staples and candy, but there's also high quality prepared foods and good ole Gifford's ice cream.
This Saturday the market is celebrating its one year anniversary with an all day party featuring a moon bounce and live music on the porch starting at 10 a.m.
He may live in Nashville now, but DC's own home boy Eric Brace will be on deck around 3 p.m. If you haven't heard his impressive new song Tranquilty Base check it out. Eric will be playing with Peter Cooper.
A moon bounce and a great song about the moon. Now that's a good party.
